, the federal reserve creating this environment where there's few alternatives and it's not necessarily driven by fundamentals. so do fundamentals not matter. >> the fundamentals are still good. we're still looking at fairly attractive, s&p 500, only about 13. i think the fundamentals are there, and the fed hasn't gott gone away yet. the fed hasn't taken await punch bowl yet. >> maria, i would just add that i think earnings have been really very impressive, and that's the big difference in my mind this year versus last year. in addition to all this stimulus, global stimulus, earnings are actually a lot better. i know the expectations were low, but no one was thinking 6% to 7% earnings growth and, okay, fine, revenues are growing at 2.2%, but that tells me margins are actually holding up which is the other case that everyone thought margins were going to roll over, the resiliency in the face of what we just went through in the fourth quarter and i think that's actually very impressive and i think the stocks will continue to work higher as earnings continue to improve. >> you also have to mentio
environment -- we did an extensive analysis to try to make sense why we have had the problem and have had so long. host: if you would like to join the conversation from eastern and central time zones -- mountain and pacific -- and if you are a health professional -- laudan aron, here are the numbers, and we see where the united states ranks in life expectancy compared to other countries. who in the study are the comparison points and how the u.s. to? guest: the panel basically compared the health outcomes in the united states to 16 other high-income democracies. it western europe, canada, australia, japan. basically countries we consider our peers in a number of the means. we ranked dead last in life expectancy among males and the comparison group and next-to- last for females. life expectancy at birth is a cumulative indicator of multiple causes of death. but as we can see, we are not doing very well. host: the disadvantage appears to exist across all ages and demographics. do you have a sense of why? guest: well, one of the real striking findings was how many different domains we are falli
too in a negative real interest rate environment but we are a little bit more underweight this year than we were last year just because we think the risk of economic global calamity is certainly less than it was at this time last year. so don't see gold as strong as it was last year. david: kevin, this is what i don't understand about the current market. a lot of people say it is not going to be growing this year as much as it was last year. last year we had all the uncertainty. uncertainty about europe. uncertainty who would get elected in the state. uncertainty if the president was reelected what would happen with taxes. we have a lot of uncertainty nailed down or more or less so. we still have questions about the debt, et cetera. with more certainty now why isn't the market set to increase as much this year as it did last year? >> well, when you get, when you have more risk you have more reward, right? when you have more certainty, certainty l certainly we've seen a rally on that. but we would be surprised we saw the returns for 2013 like we did in 2012 because there was more unc
environment. a newly authorized site in the nation of niger will become the sixth u.s. drone base in africa, joining one in morocco, senegal, uganda, and a permanent one in djibouti. u.s. drone attacks ordered by obama have spiked particularly in yemen, somalia, afghanistan, and notably pakistan where over 360 drone strikes over the nine years, 2004 to 2013, have killed over 3,000 people. this data is not classified. and not even secret. but it is troubling. so troubling that the u.n. has just decided to launch an investigation on the impacts of drone strikes on thousands of civilians. question. will the u.n. human rights council rule that drone use violates international law do you think, pat buchanan? >> i don't think they l. if they do, john, it doesn't make any difference. but we really ought to be concerned about these drones. they're a tremendously effective weapon. they save our pilots and the rest of it. but the collateral damage, the killing of civilians, the killing of children, the tremendous alienation they've increased all over this region has resulted in al-qaida frankly getti
$84. they talked about payroll tax increases. it is in a more competitive environment. the easy way for walmart is over. a little bit of a pullback is expected. back to you. melissa: thank you so much. a big month in january. we get to the bottom line with elizabeth macdonald. why is this? >> you have been talking about that great rotation. we have not seen a start like this in 15 years. in the month of january alone. it surpasses what happened all of last year combined for all four quarters. the bears have left the building. the s&p forward earnings that we are looking at are still cheap versus the october 27 peak. the s&p 500 was trading at 13. if it hits 14, then you are talking s&p 1600. if it hits 16, you are talking s&p 1700. are we setting up a classic bear trap? that stock has gotten ahead of the economic recovery. we are seeing the togo war on whether or not we will have a downdraft by end of year. melissa: who is winning? >> though bulls are winning for now. if there is a pullback there, you could be in a downdraft air up. melissa: thank you so much. lori: this has been th
's a potentially like very hard blur to the economy. and i think as difficult as the political environment is now, imagine if we went back into a recession and ma'am how it would 145r7en up the edges of the deba debate. it would be brewle it will for everybody. so i don't think sequestration will happen. i think we're just following the exact same script we did for the fiscal cliff. everybody right now i think the democrats and republicans are basically in agreement, they want to put it off, but they want to blame the other party for putting it it off. and i think that's the dynamic that's happening right now. >> if we're following that script, that was not a script that ultimately played well for house republicans. >> i agree, it didn't play well, but it's not a big victory for the democrats. >> i don't disagree, but i think the general public -- the numbers are pretty bad. >> we also did this -- people forget this, but it also happened in senior president bush and helped lead to the budget act of the andrews air force base that actually as president clinton will tell you set the stage for the p
's good. in that environment, you have -- you have correctly placed your hotels. >> well, it's really interesting for us, our business is so dependent on economic activity, business confidence and consumer confidence. you're exactly right. january in china our rev par numbers with up 6%. that's after a slow down. the government transitions almost behind us, chinese new year will be behind us. china is picking up. latsen america was the strongest growth region, slowed down last year because of argentina. we haven't talked about africa which is another place where global capital flows are coming in in ways we have never seen before. >> let's talk about china for a moment. we see china as having a big year in 2013. a lot of people had penalized your stock, tank it down to the -- well at that point into the 50s because they felt you were overexpanding in china. you're probably as a percentage of what people are putting their capital in the highest of any of the companies i follow in terms of commitment to china? >> well, we're long term bullish on china. today, we have more hotel rooms in
of competitive operating environment at the time. that model went too far. you, yourself, in a speech suggested that the outsourcing trend have gone too far. one of the trends people are talking about is the re-shoring. businesses are coming back to america. we have a lot of anecdotes. it is hard to tell whether the trend has changed. what have you seen? has ge made a decision that went too far in that direction? >> i do not think about it in terms of off-shoring re-shoring. i think of it in terms of competitiveness. there are two different things. one is globalization. globalization is where you go try to sell your product to people who are buying them. that means you get to add capability to the company. i was in four countries in africa. each could be $1 billion in the near future. you may have 70% of the content in the u.s. and 30% locally. globalization is not a bad thing. it gets lumped and cast. it is a thing called outsourcing. that was a lot of what happened in the 1980's and 1990's. virtually everything we have done has been how to access local markets. when you look back on manufactu
for in an open environment like this. they're normally trained to urban environments. but it can happen. they can do it. they can get on his trail. and they can apprehend him at night. >> chairman, i'm curious. this is so difficult. because people can have traumatic experiences in their life, bad experiences at work, and they don't turn out like this. and this kind of a horrific situation. but in the manifesto, dorner wrote, "self-preservation is no longer important to me. i do not fear death, as i died long ago on january 2nd, 2009." that was the day he says he was fired from the lapd. now, we have no indication that dorner was on the radar of the fbi. should someone like him have been, or is it just too much to ask? >> you just don't know. if he had these type of supposed while he was a police officer, certainly the lapd was aware of that. we don't know all the circumstances of why he was fired, but i can imagine if you see his actions today, that some of those attitudes, some of those actions may have played in to why he was terminated. so it was probably bigger than the event that was listed
is providing a nurturing environment for new entrepreneurs. let's start at the beginning. businesses that start here are more likely to stay here. new companies create 3 million jobs a year. in delaware, we were recently rated the second-based state in the country for knowledge and innovation -- second-best state in the country for knowledge and innovation. we have got the people, the ideas, and the capital. the challenge is to get the people, ideas, and capital together as we build the startup. inspired by successful models across the country, local entrepreneurs have created startup delaware. this is a public-private partnership that will serve as a hub for entrepreneurial activity. with support from delaware's financial, accounting, legal, and real estate. it will build relationships with university of delaware and delaware tech, and other institutions of higher ed. we know that for manufacturers and other businesses, the reliability and cost of energy is key. we need to expand our prayerful leo, -- priority. first, we import too much of our electricity from dirty and expensive sources. over
are a very different environment, very different situation today. overseas, i do think the emerging markets do represent a much -- an excellent buying opportunity here. i think they tend to outperform the u.s. going forward. >> jeff, of which of these two asset classes are the most dangerous, in your view? the long end of the bond market or gold? >> i would think the long end of the bond market. i've been in this business for 42 years as of last month. i've seen the long treasury bond go in a 3% yield to almost a 15% yield. people think they cannot lose money in bonds. i'm here to tell you, you can lose a lot of money in bonds, especially in bond funds. so i think you need to be very careful with the fixed income side of your asset allocation. >> guys, we'll leave it there. thank you for kicking off the week with us. thank you both. >>> a couple of insiders making profits off the rally. kayla tausche has more on that. >> perhaps the biggest signal of confidence in a company is when the executives and directors start scooping up shares. much of that happened during the crisis, and several ho
these breakthroughs in how we produced or consume our energy, you do get to a lower carbon environment. i think that that is a good thing. we should be moving that way and are moving that way. some of it has been command and control. cafe clearly was. but think about what else has happened. you have seen a shift to more renewables. you have seen a shift towards natural gas. in my state you have seen a shift in the technology that allows us to go after our fossil fuels in a manner that again is in less intensity than the other most likely alternative. so, we are reducing our emissions and that is the way that we should be going. but, again, to take an approach that has been tried and failed, cap and trade, or a carbon tax that is designed by its nature to increase prices at a time when our economy does not need to see increased energy prices, that will not get us to a lower carbon economy. i think my vision takes us there and it is not by accident. i think it is because our desire to be in a world that has more affordable abundant clean bill of verse and secure energy has taken that step -- clea
the importance of and making sure the american people were aware of the threat environment. >> they were going on tv then? >> yes, because the news reports had already broken that afternoon. this was a routine engagement with the press, as we normally do when these things are made public. >> the next paragraph says, according to the people on the call, brennan stressed that washington had inside control. >> inside control of the plot, yes. >> based on that, one would know that we had something inside. is that a fair statement? >> from that statement, it is known that the ied at the time was not a threat to the traveling public. >> would you agree with me that disclosure resulted in the outing of an asset that's true not have been outed? >> absolutely not. what i'm saying is that we were explaining to the american public why the ied was not a threat at the time it was in the control of the individual. when we stay inside control, that means we have the operation either environmentally or in any number of ways. it did not reveal any kind of information. i told him through transcripts that i coul
of the local environment. they are unique unto themselves. we need to make sure that we are able to work with the governments and intelligence service is so we can put pressure on them. and number of them have local agendas, and some of them have international agendas. aqap in yemen has a effort underway to bring that government down, and the government has done a great job. there are other elements, narcotics smugglers, human traffickers, they involve kidnappings and ransoms, and are involved in terrorist attacks. we need to take into account what the informant is, who we can work with, how to put pressure on them, but any element associated with al qaeda has as part of its agenda death and destruction. i agree but we need to do is be mindful of this metastasization of the al qaeda cancer. >> in relationship to some kind of centralized control over all these things and having said that the core is decimated, it really varies. we see the al qaeda core exerting control over these elements. there is a lot of independence of effort come autonomous efforts that are underway, and i will be ha
and are not in favor of gun control. if you grew up in a city, an urban environment with more guns and crime, you're probably less in favor of guns and more in favor of gun control. if that holds true, there is not going to be a huge majority in congress for gun-control. seems like it will be pretty split. there will be a lot of people that are gun owners. host: including democrats? caller: including democrats, although a smaller number. some of the ones who were gun owners said that boehner is in favor of gun control. we talked to a congressman from minnesota. he said he was a gun owner, but that he believed that some gun controls, particularly background checks, are important. to maintain safety of guns. there were 120 republicans that own guns, only 46 democrats told us that they own guns. 76% of congress answered our questions. host: why did people not answer your question? caller: they gave a variety of reasons. we had about 60 people total applying by saying that they -- declining by saying that would not talk about it. several said that it was safety reasons, that they did not think it wa
the changes in the environment, given the changes in the nature of our government, cia needs to play a part in this large a role. now the head of cia does not sit on top of the key intelligence community, but is part of a larger community that is led by another. my objective is to make sure our capabilities are leveraged and and power to responsibilities, the missions of the rest of the government, the department of the homeland security is a new creation, and they need intelligence like everyone else. when i was conveying is there was resistance at the time of the rgpa that they did not want to break some of the past practices. a lot of that resistance is overcome, and cia analyses the benefit of having someone sit on top of that committee. >> that is very helpful. i will yield back. >> that you very much, senator. senator king? you want to turn on your mike? >> thank you for your testimony and stamina to date. i should tell you in an earlier hearing secretary panetta was testifying before the armed services committee, and he strongly endorsed your nomination. i think the record church sho
? because we had inside control of the plot. it means any number of things, in terms of environment allie,-- environmentally, or working with others, or anything else, it did not reveal any classified information. we have to be careful because there are elements of this that remain classified. >> that remains appropriate. it was a couple weeks later that reuters reported that as a news -- result of the news leaks they were told they were forced to end an operation which they hoped could continue for weeks or longer. >> there was a lot of things reported by the press that were accurate or inaccurate. i would not put stock in what you're reading. i know i engaged before that leak and afterwards that we-- to make sure that we would mitigate any damage from any leaks of classified information. >> so you're saying that this reuters report may or may not be accurate but had no link on the -- to what was disclosed to mr. clark and what he said? >> what i'm saying is i'm very comfortable with what i did and what i did at the time to make sure we did with the classified -- that we are able to deal
to be overweight in this environment. >> russ, the great andy surer from "fortune" magazine is here. >> hey, andy. a lot of people are felg like they've missed the rally in stocks, but you don't want to staying in bonds. they're caught between a rock and a hard place. unintended with you guys, i guess. sorry about that. what's your advice to them? >> there's a couple of things. when i think about this, i want to do it for my portfolio construction base. it's not stocks or bonds. people are going to earn both in their portfolio. right now, we would be overweighting stocks with their valuations. the key is to look for those areas where you're getting real or after inflation returns while minimizing the risks. that suggests taking down your treasury allocation significantly. looking at credit, looking at structured bank loans, looking at municipals that have been in high yields. not because these areas look particularly cheap, but on a relative basis, they offer much better yield with less risk in my opinion. >> okay. russ, we're going to leave tlit. we appreciate your perspective. we're going to he
look over the next two years it's an environment where it's very beneficial to stocks, low interest rates, valuation, and we'll see this year about a 12% growth in dividends and that's going to be another important catalyst like it was last year to stock returns. >> okay. so, in other words, do you think we're going to see a correction before we continue higher, or are you worried that in fact we're on shaky ground because of valuations? >> maria, i'm -- i'm a bit worried because the last couple of weeks bullish sentiment by individual investors is now at about 50%. that's usually associated with a hiccup in the market. >> mm-hmm. >> last year we had two 2% connections and we're up 16% to 20% in stocks. get ready for the same this year, but from point to point it will be a productive year for stock investors again because of all this monetary stimulation and stock valuation. >> john, you're sitting there on the trading desk and seeing the flow. what is the flow right now? do you think this market wants to continue going higher? >> yeah. we continue to see the market see good flows,
the world, large and small, to help them compete in this changing commerce environment. and we will never compete with them. that's a very important point to these retailers. they don't view us... >> charlie: retailers will never compete with you. >> we want to enable you to succeed. >> charlie: in mobile and in your business and in many other businesses, is software king? is that what makes the difference? you have the better software? >> well, i think the software is the tool that allows you to build a better user experience. and a better end-to-end user experience. software and the internet, the fact that you're connected, is enabling experiences we never could have imagined before. for instance, two experiences. one, i can right now... let's say i want to get a sandwich downstairs. you want to get a sandwich. you go to a deli. there's always a long line in thdeli soou en your pay pal mobile app. you in essence check in. you preorder what sandwich. when they walk downstairs, now they'll recognize you but if you were an average consumer they'd say hello, you'd like the usual. it's waiti
already have. some nations are creating environments so attractive to global manufacturers that companies have relocated much of their activities on foreign soil. our global trade imbalance is do growing as we export less and import more. and today the imbalance includes many high-tech products. other nations are changing their policy to become more competitive and so should we. fortunately blazing trails in to new frontiers is what america has always done best. to set the stage for the congress and to understand where america is heading, we have very knowledgeable witnesses testifying before us today. each of them understands both the public and private research and development efforts as well as where our global competitors are headed. members of the committee have the opportunity to work together on policies that will help america stay competitive. and today's hearing is the first step. that concludes my opening statement. and gentlewoman from texas is recognized. >> thank you very much. for holding the hearing and thank you for yesterday's bipartisan retreat. i hope all of us will lis
for what they believe. >> it's how you teach an old dog new tricks. >> most of us are in our environment how we were raised, and we learn from them. i have said there's five promises every adult should make. the first is a child should have a loving and caring adults in their life and the second is they should have a healthy start to read the child should have an education. the child should have a safe place. the second one is a promise you cannot teach. they should grow to be loving and caring adult and give something back. the usually emulate that who they were raised by and have their fellow suit. in the political process it is hard for anyone of you looking today to try to find a hero that says i'm willing to make a vote. hopefully we will give political leaders and policy makers the courage to say i am willing to sit down and talk. i'm not worried about guilt by conversation. even though i might disagree or think that you are not right for the left field i want to hear what you are coming from. maybe we can find some commonality. i am going to make a tough vote and if someone says y
it is $125,000 as we have added so much more equipment for the environment. the good news is it is much better for the environment. but there has been a cost associated with that. so, costs are up and the lending is not what it once was. so we have many -- i showed you the small fleets are not growing the number of trucks they operate. in part the reason they are doing that, and i also showed you the age has gone up significantly so they are not worth as much as a 3-year-old truck, so we have many small fleets having to sell used trucks to afford one new one. part of that is because they cannot get financing for as much so they have to put more down. the of a thing on this that i have seen over the last two years is lease financing used to be 10%. any trucks that you would acquire in a year especially the smaller fleets would be maybe 10% of the trucks would be from the finance leasing and the rest of the purchases. today is 30 to 40% because it is the only way that they can get it. they can't get all of the financing that they need for the purchasers comes of they are turning more to t
with guns and are not in favor of gun control. if you grew up in a city, an urban environment with more guns and crime, you're probably less in favor of guns and more in favor of gun control. if that holds true, there is not going to be a huge majority in congress for gun-control. seems like it will be pretty split. host: including democrats? caller: including democrats, although a smaller number. some of the ones who were gun owners said that boehner is in favor of gun control. he said he was a gun owner, but that he believed that some gun controls, particularly background checks, are important. there were 120 republicans that own guns, only 46 democrats told us that they own guns. 76% of congress answered our questions. host: why did people not answer your question? caller: they gave a variety of reasons. we had about 60 people total applying by saying that they would not talk about it. several said that it was safety reasons, that they did not think it was appropriate to talk about their security. several of them said that they did not want to tell burglars that they had guns, because bur
work environment. i always try to compensate for things they shouldn't be doing or time taken away from their lives. depends how much time is being allotted and there has to be time submission at the end. month or by weekly that gets reviewed. at that point in time it gets determined what if anytime gets compensated. jenna: tad, john sounds like a pretty good boss. i want to work for john. i respond to a lot of e-mails after-hours and don't necessarily think about it as extra work. it is sort of my job in this day and era which is not sometimes the favorite part of the job when it is saturday and trying to respond to work e-mails but it is part of the gig. so what do you think about it? is there quota? if it is an hour of e-mailing should you get compensated for that but one or two is not really part of it? >> it's kind of scary. it is a slippery slope. you know if we do start how do we calculate? how much time do we have to spend to calculate? we're wasting more time. the reality of this in this situation they're just doing e-mails to keep abreast what is going on at the stations. the
? >> i don't think having essentially martial law in schools is a consuesive environment for young people to learn so, you know, i do not believe that we should have particularly civilians being trained to be armed guards in schools, and certainly not steven seagal. i'm not sure what the level of his resume is in terms of being a law enforcement professional, but i -- i just don't feel real safe with my kids going to a school that steven seagal is teaching people how to use guns. >> what does this say about the conversation that we've been having about gun control in this country? >> i think that's right. i think he's not fit to train people in the martial arts and certainly shouldn't train them in acting either. let's hope he doesn't take over the drama class. but listen, here in washington, d.c. area, i live in fairfax county northern virginia, one of the best school districts in the country. every single middle school and high school has a small office with an absolutely armed prepared properly trained police officer. those people give parents an awful lot of peace of mind. they note k
down, more regulation, more taxes, more of an not ti business kind of environment. the unemployment rate in texas is 7%. we're over 10%. surely they must realize that the policies here are incredibly negative. they're just anti-growth." how do you answer something like that? >> we're using that resmed case study in san diego to focus on just exactly what we might do, say, as a city or as a state to keep a company like that here. we hear a lot of generalities. i want to know the specifics. we're going to use that as a case study, and we take it seriously. we're not going to sacrifice in california or san diego a high quality of life based on educational investment, innovative economy, lifestyle, for, again, a short-term corporate profits. there are some companies, especially if they're low wage companies or established technologies that might profit from that and make that move, but when you're talking about our future and what we in san diego especially are doing is trying to recover from our economy with innovative based technologies and companies, that kind of allure is just not -
the partisan thing, and to build those coalitions out of the middle and very hard in this toxic environment. >> and also, coming up, a growing epidemic for the nation's youth, adder roall addiction and why a misdiagnosis can be fatal. we will talk to a columnist ellen schwartz, about the deadly case of one young man. and we will talk to stephanie cutter and also latino fellow from the university of texas, dr. francesco soto, but first, here is bill karins with the weather forecast. >> connecticut is not a fun place to be after the heels of the big blizzard and now dealing with freezing rain. one of the busiest highways i-95 has a overturned tractor-trailer and car on it, and that the idea of not traveling in massachusetts or connecticut, and just wait another couple of hours, because it will warm up and be rain. but right now, freezing rain is widespread in southern new england, and temperatures are warming up. new haven at 36 and providence 37 and so plenty of cold air for that freezing rain and snow and sleet there in massachusetts and new hampshire. we had the tornado yesterday, and it t
